Contrary to traditional Jewish custom, which employs the term “Safina” which can be translated as “box” or “chest” to describe the Ark Surah 29.15 of the Quran describes it as a Safina, a normal vessel, while Surah 54:13 defines it as an Ark being “a thing of boards and nails”.

Adam’s body Adam was transported through the middle, dividing the males from the females. Surah 11:41 states: “And he said, ‘Ride ye in it; in the Name of Allah it moves and stays! ‘” This was interpreted to be a reference to the fact that Noah declared, “In the name of Allah!“ when he wanted for the Ark to move and the same thing when Noah wished for it to remain still.
Medieval scholar (died 956) wrote that Allah gave that the Earth to absorb and absorb the waters. However, certain parts that were not faithful to the command received saltwater as punishment, which caused them to become dry and dry. The water that wasn’t taken informed the seas and the water of the flood remained.
